About Greenfrogindiashop

Upcycled and handcrafted.

Green Frog India was spawned from a chance meeting with a Malabar Flying Frog whilst on a cycling adventure in Kerala, south India in 2004 which was the inspiration behind establishing our acclaimed Mountain Bike Kerala Tour Company from where we source our tyres and tubes for our cycle-recycled products which started our upcycling journey.
All our our products are handmade by ourselves and members of our team from whatever discardables we can find which lead us to unwanted sari's and later to spice bags made from jute.
All our other products we bring you are sourced from the best of what we have discovered on our Indian journeys from serendipitous discoveries on our cycling tours to our new range of Malabar Spice Mountain produce which are fresh from the farmers of the local estates and plantations an area we know, love and are proud to call our home.

If any doubt from where your item is being posted from then please contact us. We will inform you at point of delivery how many days to expect.

How do I look after my upcycled tube wallet?

Your innertube product will start it's new working life a little stiff and perhaps a little dull looking (like most people starting a new job). Over time it will soften up and shine (like most people...."enough of this" editor..) as the rubber takes on oils and naturally hydrates. From time to time the thread from the internal materials and the card used in some products in the stitching process, will appear through the stitched rubber. This is a naturally process as the rubber moulds to it's shape to its new found home and will eventually stop. Just trim off with scissors if this occurs.

How do we collect our saris

We live in India and I am an Indian lady and like most of my fellow Indians we have one very large family. From collections through our family we pick up many of our saris whilst through our friends in Kerala and throughout Uttarakhand and in Delhi we have a large network of friends and supporters who save their saris for us. Most Indian ladies have an enormous sari collection and we are loathe to give them away so when we do we hand down some of our favourites which are in good condition while the ones that have not stayed pristine get thrown out in the waste, it it these saris that we collect and in most cases we pick up for free, whilst is some cases we give an donation or an upcycled gift in return.
